Description: Tamarack, or Eastern larch, is a deciduous conifer. It is a cone-bearing tree with needles that change color and drop at the end of every growing season. This is a Minnesota native tree. Larch can be found in peat-lands across the northern region and as far south as the Twin Cities metro-area. In bogs, tamarack can be found in pure stands or with black spruce.
